    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Katadyn Micropur Purification Tablets - Package of 30

    Katadyn Micropur Purification Tablets - Package of 30 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lighter than filters & pumps, tastes fin I've backpacked for years. Used pumps, filters, tablets. In my opinion, tablets are the best for ease-of-use, compactness and weight saving. I used to take tablets as a backup, but then got to thinking... why not use them as my primary source of water purification? Yes, you have to wait a bit for them to do their magic. Not a big deal if you use your brain. Some complain about the taste, but I've found that pumps and filters have their own happy taste, so the very slight chlorine taste with tablets is negligible. Pumps are heavy and they can freeze/clog/break (I've had all happen). I have a 3 liter water bladder and I can fill it 2/3 (saves weight and room), drop in 2 tablets and be fine. I take a plastic water bottle (think Evian, cheap, light store-bought) as a backup water container, too, so I can fill one of those and drop in a tablet as well. I haven't used pumps for years now and haven't had any problems at all. And I have no experience outside of North America, so I can only speak to my experiences in the (western) states and Canada. And I don't do a lot of desert hiking, so I think I'd have to alter things a bit for that sort of outing. But for hikes where water is available, these things are great. The plastic does take a tool to cut into (unless you have VERY strong teeth), but I usually have a small knife as well as some ultralight compact scissors, so not a big deal. I'd rather the package be sturdy than risk slight packaging that may fail and tear. Bottom line: love 'em. Hot temps, freezing temps, packing light, no worries.
